Report from Michael Scott on last night’s match.

The senior footballers played their first competitive game of the season last night against a very strong Cargin side under flood lights in Toome.
To use the old cliché – “it was a game of two halves”
Naomh Éanna started well and but for some poor shooting could well have been going in slightly ahead at half time, the half time scoreline showed the home team to be in front on a a scoreline of 1.04 to 0.03.
On the commencement of the second period, Cargin introduced 5 current county players (the 2 McCann’s, Crosier, Carron and Scullion) to add to their team which already contained several other county players. The gulf in class really showed, The Toome side rattled off 2.13 to Naomh Éanna 2 points in the second half. The final score was 3.17 to 0.05.

Naomh Éanna team was: –
Ruairi Scott, Fintan Eastwood, Conor Smyth, Ryan Kennedy, Conor Maxwell, Kevin Hillen, Peter Healy, Philly Curran (0.01), Daniel Kennedy, Kristan Healy (0.01), Conall Scott (0.02), James MacAuley (0.01), Damian Gault, Rian Gillan, Paddy Coogan, Michael Morgan, Eoin McNulty, Tiernan Curran.

The U14 girls are playing for the top trophy in the Winter League on Saturday at the Waterworks.
From 20 teams, we are in the top 4 and hopeful (confident) of winning.
There is a preliminary game at 3pm (not involving us).
Our game should be at about 3.15.

Other teams have had good support throughout the group matches and I am sure that will increase on Saturday.
It would be great if we could get as many as possible out to cheer the girls on.

We have contacted as many people as possible and encourage everyone to come out an support the Women's football team

A Chairde Gaeil,
After a very busy day on the club front everyone deserves a break tonight before training tomorrow and the first day of Seachtain na Gaeilge (2 weeks of Irish language events)
A big thanks everyone who took part, volunteered, participated and helped out in both events today.
Firstly a word on our 20+ coaches, parents, players and teachers that gave up their Saturday to complete the foundation level coaching course. We had two excellent facilitators in Paul Doherty and Dominic (Woody) McKinley who provided a wealth of experience and advice.
Everyone learned something new and useful and can use the network to share and seek answers to any questions if necessary. Level 1 beckons folks!

Secondly the Tesco Fundraiser (no word on the amount just yet), a big word of thanks to everyone who helped, packed bags, and generally took part. This is a big step for the club and was very well received (we plan to do it again).
A special mention to Claire Curran and Kate McGivern who were the main points of contact on the day.
Also a special mention to Brian from Tesco, who ensured that we were well looked after and could not have been more accommodating. Maith thú a chara!

Don’t forget The Club Celebration Dinner is next Friday in Corrs Corner, tickets are still available from behind the bar in the clubhouse.
